Hedge Gods was formed in 2012 in Old Colwyn, North Wales. Three musicians with extensive experience and an ear for the unusual combine double bass, acoustic guitar and hand-drumming to weave sonic tapestries of questionable sanity and undeniable appeal.
“With the opening bars of their first piece, amazed glances were shared all over the venue…The Hedge Gods were a truly unique experience.” – Threshold Festival
Fusing accomplished playing with a lack of adult supervision, Hedge Gods have been variously described as “Pulp Fiction meets Tom Waits” and “The future sound of Skiffle”. Describing themselves as an instrumental rhythmic acoustic power trio, Hedge Gods continue to defy categorisation. When a band builds its entire style on “musical differences”, there is literally no excuse for stopping!
“I’d rather be sat in a field staring into the deep blue sky listening to this acid jazz funk folk fusion all day – they are dripping with talent and have created a festival scene of their very own.” – Link2Wales
